  • Handmade, one-of-a-kind sterling silver statement pendant with two 14K gold-filled prongs
  • This pendant is truly a one-of-a-kind artwork and has been hand-fabricated in the Knot & Splice studio by the artist. The fern sprays are organic castings. The piece has been engrave-textured to create a "snow" like scenery. The back is engraved with this same snow-dusted like texture.
  • This piece hangs from a handmade hidden loop bail on the back on an approx. 24" long sterling silver high quality chain (this piece will hang lower on the chest, depending on body type)
  • carved snake piece was hand-carved by an artisan in reclaimed bone (discarded bi-product normally thrown away). The vendor assured no animals were harmed for the cabochon (it is a reclaiming process). A very unusual piece and the only piece exactly like it!
    • the back of the pendant is stamped "NM" (signature for Nicole Melton) and ".925" for sterling silver; a small leaf is hand-stamped in the back as a nod to the natural forest-like theme
    • Other handmade details: ornate edging and crown bezel with two carefully placed 14K gold-filled prongs that provide extra security and a unique decorative accent to the center piece.
    • Care: sterling silver will gain natural patina over time when left unworn (unwanted oxidization can be removed with a polishing cloth—please see our FAQ/Policies page for care instructions), but we recommend you store this piece in a sealed plastic bag and inside a jewelry box to preserve the look of the piece
    • The piece is finely polished (no patina) so that it is bright, white, and shiny like a wintery snow scene
    • handmade in the USA by Nicole Jo Melton
    • This piece is the combined efforts of over 25 labor hours
    • Please see other care instructions: FAQ/Policies page.
    • Ready-to-ship: This item is completely one-of-a-kind. You are purchasing the pictured item (pendant with chain). Your pendant will be carefully packaged inside of a Knot & Splice gilded gift box to protect it in transit. Please see current processing times for both made-to-order and ready-to-ship items on our FAQ/Policies page.
    • Insurance: please consider purchasing insurance for this item in the shop (listed as a unique item). You are responsible for insuring this item in case of mail loss/theft (we do recommend protecting your investment).

    Please note: While every effort is made to photograph the items to be an accurate representation, photography and computer monitors have limitations and differences. Colors and brightness may vary on different devices. I believe these pieces look so much prettier in person when held in the hand and admired by the eye (I've also been told this many times by Knot & Splice customers). I hope you're delighted when you receive your special piece in the mail.
